Have you noticed that your air conditioner is not getting as cold as it once did or taking longer than usual to cool down? If your air conditioner is set to maximum cool and the fans are on high, but your vents are only blowing moderately cold air, there are several avenues you can explore to evaluate your air conditioner issue:

  1. Verify that the cooling fans on the condenser or radiator are running when the air conditioner is on

  2. Search for any restrictions, such as leaves, bugs, or dirt, that would keep air from passing over the condenser

  3. Evaluate your cabin air filter to ensure that it is not clogged

  4. Check the pressures in the system using a manifold gauge set
